An simple Yahoo API example for new API developers

Discussion in 'Yahoo API' started by KC TAN, Sep 16, 2006.

    Hi all,

    I have seen that some developers are facing problems in developing with the Yahoo API and I have written a simple tutorial to illustrate. My example uses PHP with serialised output (which is the easiest to understand and implement) along with the Inbound Links API.

    Please feel free to visit my Yahoo API tutorial.

    Hope it helps:)

    Is this the only way to find inbound links for a webpage?

    Do you mean by Yahoo API? Then yes, this is the only way.

    The other external alternatives are to scrap the results from the respective search engine pages where it shows the total amount of returned results for the link: operator.

    Well if I use the link:website command on google, it doesn't display all the incoming links. It usually displays pages from within the same website.

    Cool post, I didn't know the API could do things like that. I always assumed it was just for setting up ads for some reason.

    ah, good - I know this is old but thanks for it. Been trying to sort out how to nab a specific element from the array, and yahoo's docs aren't too helpful.

    $c - is unserialized content returned from yahoo by api request
    
    if(preg_match("#<Message>limit[^<]+exceeded</Message>#is", $c)) {
        echo 'Limit exceeded, need to change IP :-)';
    }
